Subject: evil corrupt puppets?

Hi Joe:  I guess Becky put salt in her Orange Juice today.  Her over the top assessment of our Prime Minister and former Prime Minister are appalling.  Once again i defend Stephen Harper and Brian Mulroney as Conservative thinkers who both had corruption and social messes to clean up and put Canada back on a financial path to make Canada a thriving economy.  The current socialist opposition in the House of Commons today would trash the global free trade efforts and tax corporations (private funds) out of existence.  I take my hat off to our Prime Minister who has made Canada a country most of the world considers a.   safe and wonderful place to live.  On the G20 riots please give our police some credit...they were up against some well plotted violence by a bunch of thugs and it was very distressing to watch the destruction of police cars and innocent private stores in our downtown area.  Any jerk who went down to the area during this protest was asking for trouble.  The one great thing was that no one from the visiting countries was injured and no lives were lost. Have a great day Becky   Peggy Merritt

Harper's risky economic theories

Posted: 26 Jun 2012 04:22 AM PDT
There are a few items in the news today that run contrary to the constant spin we get from our Harper government spokespersons about the solidity of the omni-present Economic Action Plan and how all our possible economic troubles stem from abroad. First up: " Moody's warns on mortgage debt."
After Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced last week that Ottawa is tightening the rules on government-backed mortgages to keep the housing market from overheating, Moody's said it is concerned the efforts may not be enough.
High levels of household debt in Canada have left consumers with little flexibility to adapt to shifting markets, the credit rating agency said. "The government's moves may have come too late, owing to the buildup in consumer debt that has already occurred," Moody's said in a research note Monday. "Canadian consumers' reliance on low interest rates to support high debt loads remains a risk."

Same old story with the Harper/Flaherty team. Too late in acting and not enough scrutiny being given in Canada to the role they have played in meddling with mortgage rules.

Then there are other broader concerns being articulated: "Conference Board of Canada: Weak productivity, innovation gap pose challenges to Canada's economy."
Mr. Hodgson said Canada's productivity growth "has been dismal" compared to the U.S. and other major economies. "Thanks to chronically weak productivity growth, Canadian incomes are $8,500 per capita below where they would be if we had matched the U.S. on productivity," he said.

...
The Conference Board is not alone with these concerns. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, in a June 13 report, cited lagging business innovation and low productivity as threats to Canadian growth.

These are issues that have been under this government's oversight and don't appear to be faring so well. That economic record is not so ship shape. It might even be the kind of material that is ad worthy, if anyone had the money to do so.

Subject:  those that do the polluting will now be in charge of the research?
Stephen Harper does not believe in funding any organization that might become a critic, even inadvertently, in pursuit of the facts. So he probably will look with favor on a suggestion by a Winnipeg-based money manager who has a plan to save the ELA.
Tim Burt is the chief executive officer of Cardinal Capital Management. He has written a letter to the heads of six oil companies asking that they assume the funding of the ELA previously provided by Ottawa. It turns out that he is also the riding association president for Winnipeg South Centre Conservative MP, one Joyce Bateman. Fortunately, Mr. Burt assures one and all that there is no political motive behind his suggestion.
Of course not, Tim. What could be political about handing over the funding for an independent scientific institution to the very private sector owners whose industries would be most affected by its investigations?
Now if only Suncor, Cenovus, and Imperial see the light.

Subject: rescue groups no longer needed in Canada?
            http://www.calgarysun.com/2012/06/26/feds-cut-husar-funding
How many billions of tax dollars are being spent 'protecting' us from 'terrorists'? We have every aspect of our life monitored, right down to the feel up at airports because 'terrorism' is very likely to cause death and destruction in Canada. BUT--the feds cut aid to rescue people caught in situations like Elliot Lake or from 'terrorist' attacks? Are we supposed to believe that our government is so adept at 'protecting' us that we don't need these rescue groups any longer? They can't keep the infrastructure safe but they can protect us from 'terrorists'? I guess now that the government is controlling the climate we won't have floods, tornadoes etc? Their incompetence just keeps increasing, and we keep paying more for less.

Dear Joe,

In addition to being a cause for celebration, Canada Day is an opportunity for reflection. Just in time for the long weekend, we are pleased to share with you Samara's report on public affairs journalism. Part of our forthcoming Democracy Index, Occupiers and Legislators: A Snapshot of Political Media Coverage calls into question long-held beliefs about news media's performance and reveals that commonly held criticisms of the press may not be entirely true.

New findings challenge old assumptions

Occupiers and Legislators contrasts the coverage of two major political stories from fall 2011: the federal government's legislative agenda and the Occupy movement. This study set out to test three common criticisms levied at the media; namely that political coverage:
  • Focuses too often on political games or government processes, at the expense of issues.
  • Is routinely or overtly negative; and
  • Fails to provide the public with enough information on issues that affect their daily lives.

The analysis suggests that two of these criticisms are unfounded, and one might be true.

A group of 600 lobbyist "advisors" and un-elected trade representatives are scheming behind closed doors to decide whether you could get fined for your Internet use. Instead of debating this openly, they're meeting secretly to craft an Internet trap through an international agreement called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). We can stop them but we need you to tell your government to stop the Internet trap now.

Subject: Fw: Happy Canada Day, 25 things to ponder when serving your fellow Canadians.


Thought I would drop our Senators a Canada Day Message (below) and a few thoughts about what we the people may want to see from those elected or assigned to serve us.
There undoubtedly will be some serious considerations to review when it comes to the Senate and many of the forthcoming Bills that they will need to review, hopefully in depth and with great integrity as to whether these Bills serve the people and are of the fibre of Justice, Equality and Fairness to all Canadians. It would be a shame to just rubber-stamp these recent Bills and that would not be an act of someone that genuinely cares about their fellow Canadians.
Should you want to send your Senator an email, their addresses are below or can be found on-line.
Cheers and Godspeed, Dave.

As Canada Day draws near and I think of the needs of my fellow Canadians, I want to share a few thoughts about 25 things that are what I would like to see from someone elected to represent me. Canadians as the backbone of democracy, the unified voices of Canadians from time to time elect other Canadians to represent them.In doing so, I do not believe it to be unexpected if Canadians wanted their elected officials at all levels of government to respond in kind to Canadians by demonstrating their commitment to serve and work for the common interest of the people! Be sincere; would it be too much to ask that those elected to represent us to be of great integrity, moral character and honourable in serving their fellow Canadians by doing what they told us they would do if elected, such as:
1. Follow through on commitments. Keep promises.
2. Treat people fairly. Strive for equality for all and do it fairly.
3. Focus on achieving the most important goals for the well-being of all the people, without getting distracted by party aspirations.
4. Display enthusiasm and energy for what we the constituents are doing, our needs, problems, logical desires and even our dreams.
5. Employ dignity and honesty to help us understand the “why’s” behind big decisions that affect us as Students, Seniors, Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Farmers, all Workers, Employers and Employees, all Citizens of Canada.
6. Exhibit genuine concern for the people you work for and that means all Canadians not just card carrying Canadians that are members of your party.
7. Have high standards and live up to your promises and do not get angry when Canadians hold them to integrity and democracy, such as this email.
8. Generate excitement about major positive initiatives that serve the good of all the people all Canadians.
9. Provide clarity in all communication, up-front openness, honesty and clarity, not redacted copy and hidden agendas.
10. Consider the needs of the entire country, town, village, city province, in addition to sincere honesty in all they do for Canadians not just their team.
11. Promote creative and strategic thinking for the good of all.
12. Maintain your focus; does not multi-task when a fellow Canadian is in need. No “email voice” when we are on the phone asking for your assistance.
13. Be sincerely dedicated to our nation’s growth and development. Spend a lot of time on focused education and assisting others for the good of Canada.
14. Treat everyone with respect and dignity; Something that for the past decade or more has totally fallen off the pages of ethics and moral values.
15. Tie our country's objectives to the overall business strategy of fairness through ideas to help your fellow Canadians, not just add more taxes.
16. Real team orientation. Work to dissolve the separate camps and be open, honest and clear allowing others to debate fairly and in a just manner.
17. Take time to celebrate our success and encourage us to stay on the path of Canadian unity where is is all for one and one for all not, not all about you.
18. Be of high energy; like it never ends. A positive thinker for the benefit of all Canadians using the taxpayer's money for the benefit of all, not just some!
19. Really understands what Canadians want and need and makes sure all moral and ethical decisions stem from that; serving Canadians.
20. Share ideas and actively seeks input, not just from party members but from the Opposition and all Canadians, those that you serve, those that elected you.
21. Challenge ideas respectfully. Encourage others to speak up, not slam them, belittle them or mock them for their freedom of speech or thought.
22. Work tirelessly to do a great job of aligning us around a vision, not ramming a singular vision down the throats of Canadians without asking for their input and ammending things that are not fair, equal, right, honest or just.
23. Anything you are asked to do, you have already done or are willing to do, and this may mean a challenge that calls for the highest of integrity.
24. Be pro-active in serving as a representative of the government to look after and care for the interests of all Canadians not just the rich or those that feel they have become self-entitled, now elected you are not just another Canadian, you believe yourself to be special, this is not equality.
25. Be very candid; a straight shooter. Don't sugar coat or equivocate in order to be popular or liked. As a result be deeply trusted and we all know that there is a tremendous amount of soul searching, integrity, honesty and justice needed to acquire the capability to be of the highest morals and ethics to be a Straight-Shooter and truthfully candid in serving the constituents, the backbone of our nation.
For many,I believe that this is the way you are already operating and have no problems for others...well, I guess you have your work cut out for you.
On July 1st, Canada celebrates another day in the history of our nation, let's hope that those that serve their fellow Canadians do just that.
Be well all and God Bless all,
Warmest regards and Happy Canada Day,
Godspeed,

I wonder why this is???  Anyone there that wants to face the truth about this,or will you just bury your sad asses in the sand and say its just a poll...doesn,t matter!!

I would imagine if the poll had of consisted of another 10,000 respondents the percentage would have been in the high eighties!!

Harper needs Quebec,but Quebec sure the hell doesn't need him or want him..

PS Sponsors would be very helpful at this juncture of building the Walk for Peace into an annual event in many cities across Canada.

MEDIA RELEASE JUNE 18/12
Walk for Peace June 30th - The Next Generation
30th Anniversary 1982 - 2012
Vancouver's Walk for Peace then and now
The year was 1982. Against the backdrop of the escalating nuclear arms race, 168 different groups cooperated to create Vancouver's first Walk For Peace; 35,000 people gathered that first year, followed by 65,000 in 1983 and by 1984 we were 100,000 strong. We gathered at Kitsilano Beach forming a river of people that poured over Burrard Bridge to a concert stage at Sunset Beach. It was magnificent. A proud history for Vancouver and Canada. See our YouTube video with footage and photos from the 80 s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f80X5kp3CI
The Walk for Peace was exciting and inclusive. Children and teenagers walked with parents and grandparents, students walked with teachers, unionists walked with environmentalists and people of all faiths and all political parties walked together for peace. Our organizing principle was "There is no way to peace, peace is the way."
This is 2012. Thirty years later, we now stand at the birth of a new peace movement that we can create and grow. Come join us for the 30th Anniversary of Vancouver's Walk for Peace, Saturday, June 30th, 2012. We are starting out at 12 Noon at Kits Beach, the same location as our first walk, then walking over Burrard Street Bridge to the entertainment stage at Sunset Beach 2:00 PM in the West End, as we did in 1982.
Get involved, volunteer, endorse or become a sponsor and let's make this celebration as joyful as the first. You will discover you are not the only ones desiring peace; there are many more among us.

Subject: NETHERLANDS : Go with the Dutch

Dutch courage is something to be admired, although a little too late.

This is Good and in Dutch "DIT IS GOED"
Precisely. This is what the US should also do. 

Go the Dutch - but why wait until 2013?
The Netherlands, where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism:
The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.

A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister, Piet Hein Donner, presented to parliament on June 16, reads:
"The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people.
In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role.

With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.

The letter continues:
"A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens.
It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands...
The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants.
For example,
immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.
The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner;
"It is not the governments' job to integrate immigrants."
(How true!)             
The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws "forced marriages" and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress.

More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering, Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.

Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and realized - maybe too late - that creating a nation of tribes will kill the nation itself.

The future of Australia, the UK and Canada, may well be read here.

READERS NOTE: Muslim immigrants leave their countries of birth because of civil and political unrest "CREATED BY THE VERY NATURE OF THEIR CULTURE."

Countries like Holland, Canada, the UK and Australia, have an established way of life that actually works, so why embrace the unworkable? If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture, the answer is simple; "STAY WHERE YOU ARE!"

This gives a whole new meaning to the term;
'Dutch Courage' - Unfortunately, Australian, UK and Canadian politicians don't have the ... guts to do the same. There's a whole lot of truth here!
